NADA/F Annual Meeting - October, 2000 - Washington DC

The first known meeting of people from International Air Disaster Groups was October 17-18, 1992.  Many of those from IADG, the forerunner of NADA/F, have been working hard for aviation safety for 10-15 years, and these members were together again at our Annual Meeting.  We thank them and others for their long-term support.

Standing:
Jim Kahl, Dr. Takao Kawakita (from Japan), Joan Pontante, Tom O'Mara, Bill Beckett (from England), Dr. Alex Richman (from Canada), Judy Fiore-Brazell
Sitting: Mark Kahl, Caryl Dawson, Shifra Richman, Eileen O'Mara, Linda Beckett, and Nan Oldham.

A surprised Tom O'Mara, after he received the 2000 Air Safety Award.  Tom was the major force in bringing air crash family members together, the first family member to serve on an FAA ARAC Committee, forced much needed design changes in the MD-11 before it was certified (to not replicate the fatal flaws he learned about on the DC-10), and much more.
